Growing Old: A poem featuring Maci the Shepherd

Growing old is a beautiful process,

A life full of memories brings success.

Workdays are over and it’s time to unwind,

Ways to fill your time you’ll easily find.

Growing old is reflecting on the past,

The many years that went too fast.

From preschool to college and in between,

Career paths, marriages, and family scenes,

Growing old is counting all your blessings,

Looking back may pull on your heartstrings.

Is someone in your life growing old?


Kindness: A poem featuring Lucy the Great Pyrenees and Elvis the Cat

Kindness is checking on someone in need,

Making them feel like they can succeed.

Kindness is opening the door for somebody,

Even if you’re rushing to buy some coffee.

Kindness is always being a good friend,

Choose your words and do not offend.

Kindness is offering a shoulder to lean on,

Be a good listener and don’t show a yawn.

Kindness is being inclusive and real,

Be the reason someone wants to heal.

How do you show kindness?

Differences: A poem featuring Stevie the Wonder Dog

We all shine in our own special way,

We all have important things to say.

We all express ourselves differently.

We all navigate through life skillfully.

We all possess many great qualities,

We all have different goals and priorities.

We all want to be accepted and loved,

We all want to be praised and hugged.

We all want to show the world what we can do,

We all want our challenges to help us through.

We are not all the same and that’s just fine.

We all should embrace our unique design.

Stevie the Wonder Dog has a diagnosis of Cerebellarhypoplasia and spreads so much joy!


Happiness: A poem featuring Tank the English Bulldog

Happiness is being a good girl or boy,

Happiness is holding your favorite toy.

Happiness is being comfortable in your skin,

Happiness is beauty coming from within.

Happiness is friendship and true love,

Happiness is the sun shining above.

Happiness is sleeping in a warm fuzzy bed,

Happiness is sometimes getting overfed.

Happiness is pursuing what you want to do,

Happiness will always look good on you.

January Blues

The holidays are over and your guests are missed,

You may be feeling blue because of this.

It’s definitely normal to feel this way,

Soon there will be another fun filled day.

Reflect on the memories and good times you had,

Think of happy things so you won’t feel bad.

The January Blues are real for some folks,

So grab a friend and share some jokes.

Do you have the January Blues?

Hope: A poem featuring Connie the Rescue Dog

To hope is to dream of better days,

To feel the warmth of the sun’s rays.

To hope is to never lose faith,

To pray to find a warm embrace.

To hope is to always respect yourself,

To give it your all and prove oneself.

To hope is to know it may take time,

To find that ladder so you can climb.

To hope is to find your place in life,

To love unconditionally and shine bright.

Labor Day: A poem featuring Nickel Labrador Ember

Labor Day is celebrating the American worker,

A day of rest for the hard-working earner.

Labor day is spent with family or friends,

Time off the clock with no paper and pens.

Labor Day is reflecting on a job well done,

A holiday for you means go have some fun.

Labor Day is a shortened work week,

No Monday blues to make you freak.

Labor Day is a time to lie in your nest,

Get some rest so you can be your best.

How do you spend your Labor Day?

Smile: A Poem featuring Echo the Weimaraner

A big smile is a beautiful thing,

A gesture that can make your heart sing.

A big smile is a sign of gratitude,

A way to show your positive attitude.

A big smile can even say hello,

Lifting your spirits if feeling low.

A big smile can change the mood,

No one wants to be called rude.

A big smile can make someone’s day,

Always be kind and ask them to play.

What does your smile say about you?


The time has come for back-to-school,

Don’t forget the number one rule.

Respect all of your teachers and peers,

Surely you’re happy and there are no tears.

Learning is fun so get ready to study,

You may even find a new lunch buddy.

Find a system to keep yourself organized,

After school time should be prioritized.

Teachers are nice and there to help you,

Advocate for yourself and be friendly too.

How do you feel about Back-to-School?

Stop And Smell The Roses

Don’t let life pass you by,

Take time to appreciate the why.

Our lives are busy and we must see,

The many things that allow us to be.

Start your day with a grateful heart,

Take a walk or sketch some art.

Live life fully for each day is a gift,

Find some roses and take a whiff.

Don’t let life pass you by,

Slow it down so the days don’t fly.

Have you stopped and smelled the roses today?
